Writer-director Clint Bentley delivers a powerful homage to horse racing and the realities of the riders in this intimate drama focused on a near to retiring jockey aiming for one final championship, when a rookie rider arrives claiming to be his son.

An aging jockey (Clifton Collins Jr.) hopes to win one last title for his longtime trainer (Molly Parker), who has acquired what appears to be a championship horse. But the years – and injuries – have taken a toll on his body, throwing into question his ability to continue his lifelong passion. And the arrival of a young rookie rider (Moises Arias), who claims to be his son and whom he takes under his wing, further complicates the path to fulfilling his dream.
